Good evening,

On March 30, 2019, Western Reserve Academy will be hosting it’s first annual WRA Future Stars Competition!
There will be two divisions of play:
9th -10th grade division
7th – 8th grade division (MSNCT Qualifier for top 15% finish)

This format is also intended to give Juniors and Seniors from your Quiz Bowl teams an opportunity to demonstrate leadership and earn volunteer hours by reading and scoring during the tournament.

The initial combined cap for the combined divisions will be 40 teams. We will be playing modified timed rounds (12 minute halves) to give players an opportunity to adjust to the timed rounds they’ll find at the National Championships.
Both tournaments will be held on the NAQT IS-184A set.
These rounds should be standard difficulty for our 9th-10th grade division, and should be challenging for our 7th-8th grade participants. Hopefully, these questions will help prepare them for the challenge of the NAQT Ohio State Championships and the HSNCT/SSNCT/MSCNT to come less than two months later.

We will offer lunch from our dining hall. We will have a defined per player cost for our lunch when we have a better idea of how many teams will be participating.

FEES:
First Team: $65
Each Additional Team: $55
Buzzer Discount: -$5 per working buzzer system
Reading/Scoring Discount: -$5 per reader/scorer
Driving Discount: There is a $10 discount for teams traveling over 100 miles one way (our zip code is 44236).
MINIMUM Fee: $45

Please make checks payable to:
Western Reserve Academy

Your registration checks can be mailed to:
Doug Wheeler
115 College Street
Hudson, OH 44236


Registration will be from 8:00 A.M. until 8:30 A.M., followed by a brief meeting for coaches and players. We expect to begin play promptly at 9:00 A.M.

Please feel free to reach out to me at wheelerd@wra.net should you have any questions or would like to make a reservation for the Future Stars Competition!
